Microsoft's Windows Defender goes gold

Windows DefenderYesterday Windows Defender left beta-land and the final version is now available for download from Microsoft. Windows Defender is Microsoft's answer to malware, and the latest version has quite a few improvements over beta 2, including a new faster scanning engine, a streamlined UI, improved accessibility features, x64 support, and automated cleaning. Windows Defender is a free download but requires a Windows Genuine Advantage check, though apparently there are ways around that.
